Dave: This is something of an oddity in that it doesn't really fit into any one particular category of game. It's basically an arcade game, but there's also some strategic and adventure aspects.

Visually it resembles Ant Attack, in that the enemy camp you've parachuted into is shown in isometric perspective which can be viewed from different sides - but there's far more to it than that! Your mission is to rescue the secret files hidden in the camp's warehouses but first, you must find the office safe containing a gun and the key to one of the warehouses. Each warehouse contains the key to the next one along with some other useful items like bullets and explosives.

All the time you're playing, the camp's being patrolled by guards who shoot at you, and dogs which just get in the way. Once you've found some money it's possible to bribe the guards to leave you alone for a while, but you can always tempt them to move away with a few carefully placed explosions.

All in all, this is quite a good game. I've a few reservations as to its lasting appeal, but I would recommend it. 3.5/5 HIT

Ross: Isometric full-colour graphics aren't such a thrill these days, but they are used well. 1/5 MISS

Roger: Get ready for this death-defying program - it's quick wits all the way. 4/5 HIT
